The Easiest Way to Get Your Passport!
Who Needs A Passport?
We Have The Applications
Application forms for passports are available at the Hempstead Town Clerk's Office. You must bring acceptable proof of United States Citizenship (i.e., a previous passport and certified birth certificate) and proof of identity (i.e., a previous passport and a driver's license) with you. Anyone who is applying for a new passport must appear in person. (Please note: No cross outs or white out are allowed on any application.)
We Take The Picture
For your convenience, we can take your required passport photo (one, 2 X 2-inch color photograph taken within the past six months, showing current appearance, full face, front view with a plain white or off-white background). A fee of $10 per person applies.
Your New Passport Is Mailed To You!
Your completed application will be processed and forwarded to Passport Services on the same day that you apply. Passport processing times have increased due to high volume. Currently, you can expect your passport to arrive within four to six weeks via priority mail. Expedited service (two to three weeks) is available from the United States Department of State for an additional fee. Passport Cards are sent via first class mail. The status of your passport application should be available online 7 to 10 days after applying at the U.S. Department of State.
Now extended through June 30, 2018, the Hempstead Town Clerk’s Office is waiving town fees for replacement Passports lost in Superstorm Sandy. Residents must show a FEMA claim or homeowner’s/flood insurance claim in order to take advantage of the fee waiver.
You may pick up a passport application and request the necessary information you may need anytime during regular business hours, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:45 PM and Thursday, 8:00 AM to 7 PM. Any completed application will be accepted no later than 60 minutes prior to closing depending on availability of our agents.
